The quaint streets of Bempton village are again ready to welcome hundreds of visitors to the popular Victorian Christmas Market this November.
Many of the stallholders and organisers dress in traditional Victorian attire to give a period nod to the day, and with stalls selling mulled wines and mince pies, the event marks the the countdown to Christmas.
This year the event will be in memory of popular Bempton resident and community champion Nev Nicholson who sadly died in March this year. Nev was instrumental in starting the Victorian market and was one of the key organisers of the event.
This year, the market will be held on Sunday 17th Novemeber with around fifty stalls lining Cliff Road and the car park around the White Horse pub.
Richard Burton, one of the event organisers, said: “It’s a lovely day out for all the family with a wonderful, festive atmosphere.The Victorian Market has been running since 2000 and has grown from strength to strength to become the village’s biggest one-day attraction. We are dedicating this year’s market to Nev Nicholson who made such a positive impact on the village with his public spiritedness and service to local good causes said Richard.
The Bempton and Buckton Village Hall will again host part of the event with a large number of craft stalls . The market organisers are still looking for stallholders and also volunteers to help with setting up the stalls.
The event aims to raise enough money to fund next years event and cover the cost of the entertainment and insurances.
